by cbs this is the "cbs evening news." >> reid: good evening. i'm chip reid. of the 38 days remaining until election day, the most important of all may be this coming wednesday when president obama and mitt romney meet in denver for the first of three debates. the stakes are sky high, especially for mr. romney. running mate paul ryan made the case for a mitt romney presidency today in the toss-up state of new hampshire. >> we have got to stop spending money we don't have. >> reporter: vice president joe biden campaigned in battled ground florida, where he argued that the obama administration inherited trillion-dollar deficits from the bush administration. >> they put two wars on a credit card, not paying a penny, not paying a penny. >> reid: meanwhile be president obama and mitt romney were hunkered down today cramming for next week's debate showdown. both sides are working hard to lower expect aches by praising their opponents. a romney adviser says the president has the advantage as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. the obama campaign says romney ha
the american dream?." it's all ahead on "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and we welcome now to the broadcast new jersey governor chris christie. governor, thank you for being here. governor i have to start off by saying i don't hear very many republicans these days who think mitt romney is doing very well. what's your take here? >> well, he's had a tough couple of weeks. let's be honest. i'm not going to sit here and come on this morning and sugar coat the last couple of weeks. they've been tough. but here's the great news for republicans -- we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night. the first time he has the opportunity to stand on the same stage with the president of the youth, and the first time the majority of the people who will vote in this race will have an opportunity to make the direct comparison and see the two of them. when they do, i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come inned with night. he's going to lay outs had vision for
campaign will be one of the guests on this weekend's face the nation. and joining us now live from cbs news here in washington is the host, bob shaefer. we know you are moderating the upcoming presidential debate. you don't want to talk about what happened wednesday night. are these unemployment numbers we are seeing today the best news the president could possibly have coming after the performance on wednesday? >> if there is better news out there for this white house, i don't know what it would be. because you know, most people followed these things thought unemployment was going to pick up this time around and in fact, it actually went down. this is about as good as the numbers have been since barack obama has been president. so, will it help? i couldn't say for sure. but i'll tell you one thing, it is sure not going to hurt. >> that's exactly right. you'll also have former baseball manager on face the nation this sunday and i know that everybody here in washington can agree on one thing. that is, the nationals are in the playoffs. we are excited about it. you're a big nats fan. let me
states. particularly a problem tonight is florida. the latest cbs poll shows obama ahead by nine points in florida. so, is this true? you may have heard about this. many on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl rove who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each roughly the same percentage of the republicans and democrats as their opponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're most likely going to vote, 36% say they're democrats, 27% republicans and 33% independents, so as you can see, the math that karl rove laid out doesn't necessarily have to be so. let's bring in our panel here and talk about all of the polling here we
to approach them with a lot of skepticism. in ohio last week, we had cbs/"new york times" poll saying ten points for obama. and a columbus dispatch poll saying nine points. frank newport the head of the gallup organization had a blog posting that was revealing. he said you have to subject the state polls to the judgment of experience. he said for example, take ohio. the president won there by less than five points last time around. this time around, the poll that said he is winning by ten, does it make sense he would do twice as well, the margin is twice as big this time around than it was in 2008 when everybody is pointing to closer election than in 2008. of course not. it doesn't make sense. take this with the nevada and ohio shifts because of outlier polls. p.p.p. interestingly enough had a poll that was the outlier in nevada, plus nine for obama. then two polls in ohio. as a result they move it across the line from tossup to lean obama. i would say this, though. step back just a little bit and look at the arch since april. president obama has gone from 220 solid states, electoral coll
was that the polls that have come out after the debate are backing up what some of our panel members said. the cbs poll of undecided voters showed romney leading obama 46-22% on the question of who won with 32% saying they died -- tide. >> and let's continue with reaction. we asked you, some of our facebook friends, who won the debate. jay wrote romney hands down. obama is nothing but rhetoric. ofasso wrote obama was clearber what he is going do for us. we're still not sure what romney will do and jessica wrote in the middle here. debate is not about winning or losing at this point. we want to hear what you think about the debate. tell us on our facebook page. easy, go to -- search for my fox dc. >> another topic after the debate is the fate of big bird. last night, mitt romney said he would cut funding to pbs to bring down the deficit adding he liked the sesame street character big bird but not at a steep price. take a look. >> i'm s jim, i will stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i like pbs and big bird, i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money

[inaudible conversations] i think we are about ready to get started.
romney screw up -- that is the kind of thing that cbs is not holding him accountable. both candidates will do the syrupy things but mitt romney is doing press conferences and obama has not been doing press conferences. you can look at the research on this. president obama has done more one-on-one said downs then press conferences. he likes to control the message and he would rather sit down with barbara walters and have her ask them what superpower he would like to have. host: fredericksburg, va., an airline for democrats -- -- on our line for democrats -- caller: i get tired of them talking about liberal, biased media. if there was, do you think they will allow george bush' to set p the war on allied? a lie? our country wanted to collapse, how many economic speculative to they have and the network? none of them do this? they talk about the kindness of mitt romney because he is a preacher -- printer or bishops at this church. isa pasture -- but pastor's not help his flock, you need to find another church. host: we will leave it there. guest: i don't think the news media has spent a lo
university "new york times" cbs news poll shows obama leading in ohio, florida and pennsylvania. it matches our own marist polling which shows the president leading in all nine swing states. joining me now, peter brown, the assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling institute. peter, i want to ask you about historically speaking have the polls been largely accurate? >> yes. the polls have been quite accurate over time. now, everybody likes to point to the 1948 election when the polls said that thomas dewey would win the election and he didn't. harry truman did. that was 40 years ago when polling was in its infancy. polls are very good at telling you what the situation is at the time they're taken, not a week from thursday, not two months from tomorrow. they're good for then. >> that snapshot, right. some of the gop complain the pollsters are oversampling democrats in the swing states. are they overestimating democratic turnout for november? can you explain how this works? >> sure. the key is that we and most of the other major polls do not weight by party. that is, there is no

different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you, they're not pushing back on these ohio polls. they know they are down. how far? are they five down? si
